Forbes" Magazine has decreed: "Elite Squad 2 – The Enemy Within" should receive an Oscar. The site of the magazine has an entire article praising and defending the film. The Academy Awards are “constantly accused of being more motivated by marketing than quality and for rewarding formulaic blockbusters instead of original art films. It’s time to go back to the basics.”

* The text continues: "Based on that premise, the Academy should award top honors to the Brazilian Martin Scorsese-style crime drama ‘Elite Squad 2: The Enemy Within.’" Forbes goes on to tell the whole story of the film and the context in which it was produced. “One of those cases when reality and fiction begin to merge, “Elite Squad 2″ is both artistically and socially relevant like no other movie has recently been." Wow!
